“Performing arts education is a vehicle used to teach life lessons. These lessons can change young lives. Youths learn to listen, to work with and respect others, to respect and honor themselves, to be proud of who they are and what they can accomplish, and most importantly to help them know that they matter and are loved. Why wouldn’t anyone be proud to play a small role in their journey? To see the smiles on their faces and receive their hugs is so meaningful. We love the children and are proud to be a part.”
